Mrs. Gius's Homepage
Welcome to Mrs. Gius's homepage!! I am a Colorado native and have lived in Mountain Shadows for over twenty years. I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado, along with my five brothers and two sisters. I was lucky #7 in birth order!
I attended The University of Southern Colorado, now C.S.U. Pueblo, and earned my undergrad degree in Elementary Education. I received my master’s degree from Graceland University. This is my 22nd year teaching; my 14th year at Chipeta. I have taught third, fourth and fifth grade, and middle school. Fourth grade is my favorite!!
I married my high school sweetheart, Dino, and together we have three boys who all attended Chipeta! Zachary, our oldest son, lives and works in Colorado Springs as a business analysist. Gregory, our middle son works for the Department of Revenue in Denver and is engaged to be married to my beautiful daughter-in-law to be, Amanda. And, our baby (please don’t ever tell him I still refer to him as the baby 😊) Jeffrey, who recently graduated as a biochemist, just started his first year of dental school at C.U. Anschutz. I love to read, hike, bake, play poker, spend time with my family and friends, and watch football. My passion is working with children and instilling a love of learning in them.
